SUBJECT: FRANCE: ENCOURAGING EU PARTICIPATION IN APRIL
28-29 TERRORISM FINANCE WORKSHOPS

REF: STATE 69216

(U) On April 15, we delivered reftel demarche encouraging
French participation in the April 28-29 terrorism finance
workshops to Karine Seguar, Chief of the Finance Ministry's
Bureau of Asset Controls; to the French Financial
Intelligence Unit TRACFIN; and to the MFA. Responding first,
Segura explained that advance notice of the meeting was
received somewhat late (our demarche in fact was the first
notice she had received), but she hoped a summary would be
made available after the workshop. Following this
conversation, we spoke on April 25 with Yves Trotignon from
the C/T office at the MFA, who said that "2 or 3" French
officials from the Finance Ministry would in fact attend.
Nobody from the MFA would attend, said Trotignon, although
the possibility remained that someone from the French Embassy
in Luxembourg might join the Finance Ministry officials.
